The outstanding Asian food of Maia by the AC
The catering at an Asian wedding is one of the essential elements, particularly for honoured guests. They readily grasp the opportunity to use all their senses to feast upon the foods served. A client told us, ‘Food at Asian weddings is always the same and not of high enough quality. We want something different. That’s why we came to you. The food at the Maia launch was outstanding. Our family and friends will love it at the wedding.’
The AC’s Head Chef, together with Maia’s highly experienced menu designers, will create the perfect menu for each celebration. There are endless possibilities for perfection in the Asian/European fusion dishes imagined by our creative and experienced team. Delicious menus will be specifically designed to suit each wedding or party and will incorporate the highest quality catering available.
Event budgets vary hugely, and we pride ourselves on our flexibility in meeting these. Just tell us what you would like, and we will design the menus to suit your requirements from the most lavish international celebration to a quiet dinner for a select group.
Mouthwatering canapés are served to guests by our staff on beautifully elegant canapé trays. Our menu designers will tailor these to your style and or course will be specific to your guest’s tastes and dietary requirements. Preparing delicious chaats, live dosas and Lebanese cuisine for a Mehndi lunch, followed by Japanese, Thai and Chinese with a live sushi bar for a Sangeet dinner is easy for our experienced Chefs.
Fine dining is the norm for Maia clients, so we can provide any style or work with any theme, with our executive chefs creating the perfect menu. You may choose something like seared sea bass with fresh coconut, Keralan spices, mange tout, pea shoots and shiso cress, tamarind and curry leaves or perhaps quail lacquered with apricot, saffron and bay, lentil khichari rice, onions, cumin, spinach, turmeric and kadhi spiced yoghurt.
The culture of sharing
Street food carts and buffets are often a favourite when guest numbers are high, and we tempt them with a delicious display of foods with amazing textures, flavours and fragrances. Our pani puri or golgappa cart, are very popular, as is our tandoori kebab cart, with its smoked tiger prawns, lamb chops, reshmi murg kebab, tandoori paneer.
Chef and his Asian team of specialists understand regionality in the Asian cuisine context. From the streets of Punjab to the Palaces of Mewar, we will provide bespoke Asian cuisine with authenticity in the flavours of the dishes.
Whatever the region or style, our chefs are brimming over with ideas and the skills to create something stunning and unique each time. Clients often select dishes such as Amritsari kulche te chole, to the famous Patiala chaap (lamb fingers) are matched perfectly with freshly baked butter naan and madi daal, or fiery Chettinad chicken with Kerela prawn curry and lemon rice and Sambhar and rasam are perfect.
Why not add a live paan stand and pick and choose your favourite fillings from rose paste, suprari, candied fruits, cardamon pods, roasted fennel seeds and many more, then observe our master paan crafter wrap everything in a fragrant betel nut green leaf!
Maia pudding and sweet buffets are something to behold. They are utterly opulent with scented delicacies piled high on beautiful platters and are a treat for their eyes as well as their taste buds. If you would prefer a delicate plated pudding, we can design the perfect confections and present them on plates made for individual clients by reputable UK china manufacturers in England.
No party is complete without something cool, delicious and refreshing to accompany the perfect menu. Our mixologist and cellar master has an astounding array of hand-selected drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic to delight all tastes and requirements. The AC has selected a delicious, crisp Champagne to carry our brand name that astonishes most clients in blind tastings, often winning over many other exclusive brands. However, if you would prefer to serve Möet & Chandon, Dom Perignon or Krug, etc., we can, of course, supply them.
Cocktails are the rocket fuel of a party and will make it take off with a roar. Our bar staff and mixologists have spent years honing their skills, stirring, shaking and muddling the cocktails that are pure perfection. Our non-alcoholic cocktails are legendary and are just as good if not better than their alcoholic alternatives.
